Just put MIMB snorkels on a friends 2008 750i brute :rockn:that was so much easier than my prairie . Had to go around side of the steering stem(no 3'' 90 avail.) but it didnt seem to choke it down much , we ran it aginst my P650 before and after with the same results both times ......He got me by about a quad length off the line and thats where he stayed ! Guess i need jets and a exhaust now . Thanks for the great info on this proj. without it i may have spent more money or time . only took about 2 hours to complete the job test to test:bigok::bigok:

I use silicon yes. Others use just a sealant that doesnt dry, like, white lithem grease, di-electric grease, etc... I just use silicon.

I have got a couple of questions, 1, I have 2" abs pipe routed all the way into the air box, what differance will the 3" rubber 90 make? BTW, I have the MIMB Center snorkels. 2, Where can I find the Die-electric grease at, I have looked at Lowes, serveral auto part stores and northern tool, and have not been able to find any. Thanks for the help guys.

Most use the 3" rubber 90 because it will flow air much better then the 2" rubber 90. If you noticed the 2" rubber 90 is very small.Its less then 2".

You should be able to find the Dielectric grease at any Auto Zone.

Or you could order it on line.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Permatex-Dielectric-Tune-Up-Grease-3oz-Tube-USA-Made_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp3286Q2em20Q2el1116QQitemZ280236327793QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

I am running 2" ABS all the way to the air box, not the 2" rubber 90. Since I have 2" ABS pipe all the way to the airbox, would it make any difference to change to the 3" rubber 90?

Way overpriced.

85g $12.41 retai

Yea no doubt, but I found the same grease that is posted on ebay at Auto Zone for $5.99 plus tax.........Works for me.

As for a difference between using a 3'' rubber 90 vs. a 2'' plastic 90 I am not sure if there is much . I am running PVC all the way to my airbox too had to cut about 1/2 inch off air box side of fitting and it is starvin for fuel a high rpm (about 58 mph) so i would say mine is flowin fine . when i had rubber 2'' 90's it started starvin for air in the midrange (about 40 mph) one of these days i am gonna take the fenders off and take it apart just to post pics:bigok:

I had to cut about 1/4 inch off of the 2" 90 fitting going into the air box to allow the pipe to go by the stearing stem without rubbing.
